A Tanto style can be shorter than that, so does that make it legal? The law still seems vague as to where the dividing line is between a “knife” and a “weapon.” Impressive! Wisconsin`s law is bad enough for hunters and fishermen.

Their law is compared to Michigan`s knife law, which is very vague, to be honest. In Michigan, you can carry most knives (as long as you don`t intend to use them intentionally or to defend yourself against someone), especially hunting knives that you can carry as long as you don`t intend to use them illegally, lol. In Wisconsin, what do you have to do to get a stick and stone and sharpen it to go hunting or fishing, oh technically, that would also be illegal. It seems to me that these states should adopt new laws to simplify existing ones. Also, the open wearing law, as I understand it, states that weapons can be carried openly as long as they are a stone`s throw from use, does that apply to blades like the one I am talking about here?
